EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
The Estherville Lincoln Central Community School District has an established policy of Equal
Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action with respect to race, religion, color, sex, age or
national origin. We expect the administration to know of and fully accept the Equal Opportunity
and Affirmative Action policy and to make certain that no employee or applicant for employment
shall suffer any form of discrimination because of race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin,
disability, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity. In order to effectively communicate and
interpret the district’s policy to all levels of the administration, and to all other employees,
community and educational agencies, and the public in general, the following will be undertaken:
A. Dissemination of Policy
1. Employees will be reminded annually of the district’s written statement of policy by:
a. Description of policy by publication or reference in all issues or re-issues of
personnel handbooks.
b. When appropriate, publicize the Equal Employment Opportunity and
Affirmative Action policy and such activities through news stories or other
articles in district publications.
c. Detailed discussions at administrative conferences and staff meetings.
2. Employment advertisements will contain assurance of equal employment
opportunity.
3. All employment and recruiting sources where jobs are listed by the district will be
reminded of our policy, both verbally and in writing.
4. Notices will be posted on bulleting boards and in locations where applicants are
interviewed. These will inform employees and applicants of their rights under
federal and state civil rights laws.
B. Responsibility for Implementing the Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative
Action Policy.
1. Responsibility is assigned to the Affirmative Action Coordinator, who will render full
assistance and support for those seeking help and assistance in taking affirmative
action.
C. Recruiting
1. Additional emphasis will be given to seeking and encouraging applicants from
minority groups, and women’s groups, where such applicants with the necessary
qualifications or potentials are available. In keeping with the law, consideration
shall be given to the veteran status of applicants.
D. Training
1. All training and in-service programs supported or sponsored by the district will
continue to be equally open to minority and female employees on the basis of
qualifications.

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
E. Hiring, Placement, Transfer, Layoff, and Recall
1. The district recognizes of its Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action
policy, continuous affirmative action must be taken to ensure that opportunities of
all kinds are called to the specific attention of members of minority groups and that
qualified members of minority groups should be offered positions on the same
basis as all other applicants or employees. To assure achievement of the
objectives, the district will periodically review its practices in hiring job applicants.
F. Compensation
1. All employees, including women and minority group employees, will receive
compensation in accordance with the same standards. Opportunities for
performing overtime work or otherwise earning increased compensation will be
afforded to all qualified employees without discrimination based on race, religion,
color, sex, age, national origin, disability, creed, sexual orientation, or gender
identity.
G. General
1. Not only in the above matters, but in all other areas of the employer-employee
relationship, the district will continue to cooperate with minority groups because
being fair is the best assurance that it is not discriminating or creating the
appearance of discrimination.
This Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Program will be reviewed and updated annually.
Inquiries by employees or applicants for employment regarding compliance with equal
employment opportunity and affirmative action, including but not limited to complaints of
discrimination, shall be directed to the Affirmative Action Coordinator by writing to Tara Paul,

Estherville, IA 51334; or by telephoning at 712-362-2692.
Inquiries by employees or applicants for employment regarding compliance with equal
employment opportunity and affirmative action, including but not limited to complaints of
discrimination, may also be directed, in writing, to the Director of the Region VII Office of Civil
Rights, Department of Education, Kansas City, MO. Such inquiry or complaint to the federal
office may be done instead of, or in addition to, an inquiry or complaint at the local level.
